This is a magnificent and very large (42x27) oil painting - it is a Russian scene painted by a immensely talented Polish artist. It depicts a classic Russian scene -- a peasant troika (it's actually a sledge) being pulled by a team of draft horses ... and they are being attacked by wolves. The men on the troika are shooting at the wolves to keep them away from the terrified horses. This is an ARCHETYPAL RUSSIAN SCENE ... the struggle between wolf and man trying to protect against the wolf. The scene is one of great drama -- you can see the speed at which the horses are charging ... you can see the terror on the horses faces ... you can see the wolves being shot and flying into the air ... you can almost hear the shots and smell the fear. This is a brilliant painting that is painted by a talented Polish artist. It is signed and dated in the lower right "Leon Waczinski 1992". It is well framed in a giltwood and gesso frame that is original to the painting.

Age: 1992 (it is dated)

Dimensions: It measures 42" x 27" framed

Condition: It is in good condition. Some reflection from the photo lights in the first and second photos. No loss of paint. No holes or tears in the canvas, no repairs. The frame is in good condition as well.

Where is it from? This beautiful piece comes from a prestigious estate auction in Long Island's Gold Coast, home to America's wealthiest families for generations.
